[ARCHIVED] MFRD Responds to Fire at Just Love Coffee Roasters (129 MTCS Road)

Coffee Roasters Fire

Murfreesboro Fire & Rescue Department responded to a fire at Just Love Coffee Roasters located at 129 MTCS Road around 2:15 Wednesday afternoon.

Ladders 6, 7, 8, Engine 4, and Rescues 7 and 8 responded to the scene and discovered heavy smoke. All employees had been evacuated from the building.

When they entered the business, crews found the coffee roaster on fire. Employees had attempted to put the fire out with an extinguisher, and most of the fire was knocked down upon MFRD’s arrival.

However, when crews used the aerial on Ladder 6 to get a perspective on the roof, they discovered a small amount of fire had extended into the vent pipe. They quickly extinguished the flames and began conducting salvage and overhaul.

According to Fire Marshal Carl Peas, the fire has been ruled as accidental.

It is unclear if the business will still be able to operate. They were advised by Fire Marshal Peas to contact the Health Department.
